The Book Game

Here are the rules:

  1. Grab the nearest book.
  2. Open the book to page 123.
  3. Find the 5th sentence.
  4. Post the text of the next three sentences on your blog along with these instructions:
  5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in you closet. I know you were thinking about it. Just grab what is closest.

Check it out... it's really fun. Here are my results:

Dino was very good at fetching the stones his master threw for him, and knew how to beg for a lump of sugar or a piece of meat. And Queneau adds, quite simply, "The other regulars at the hotel looked at us, or rather looked at me since Dino did not exist." This trip in the company of a dog that does not exist is the entire subject of the story.

Personally, I'd rather travel in the company of a dog that does exist. They keep the bed warmer.

Ok, here goes.......
Like a feather caught in a vortex, Williams ran around the square of bases at the center of our beseeching screaming. He ran as he always ran out home runs--hurriedly,unsmiling,head down, as if our praise were a storm of rain to get out of. He didnt tip his cap.
